DeRozan Texted LaVine “Get Your A** Back” Immediately After Beating the Lakers

Chicago Bulls

DeMar DeRozan was at it again on Sunday night, putting on a clinic in what Los Angeles Lakers’ forward Carmelo Anthony says is a lost art that DeRozan has mastered, the midrange game.

DeRozan torched the Lakers for 38 points, 19 of which came in the fourth quarter as the Bulls completed the season sweep of the Lakers with a 115-110 victory at the United Center. It’s good to have DeRozan back in the lineup, but even DeMar can’t wait for Zach LaVine to make his return sometime next week, and he said as much after the game in another one of those feel-good moments in the bromance between Zach and DeMar.

LaVine will be sidelined through the Christmas holiday as he remains in the Health & Safety Protocols but is eligible to clear the protocols on December 26. The Bulls play the Indiana Pacers on December 26 at 7:00 pm (CT), but might that be unreasonable to believe that LaVine would be ready to play the same day they’re eligible to return? I would imagine that December 27 in Atlanta or December 29 at home against Atlanta would be a more accurate return to play date for that trio. Either way, when these two are on the floor together, the Bulls are pretty tough to beat.


Remember when folks said that Zach and DeMar wouldn’t work? Lol, good times.
